Scor-Pal and DCWV

Hi everyone!  I am so happy that Scor-Pal and Die Cuts With a View has teamed up to bring you a fabulous Blog Hop!  Their new line, Autumn Splendor is just gorgeous!  Along with my post today, I will be featuring projects used from the line all week long on my blog.  I am so happy that fall is finally here.  We have had both beautiful fall days and crisp fall days here in Colorado.  That means that snow is not far away!

Of course, if you missed any of the great projects from this week, just scroll down to see what has been going on.  Be sure to leave some love on each post for a chance to win some great prizes.

OK, onto my project.  Believe it or not, this project only takes about 30 minutes to complete!  Yup, you read right, 30 minutes!  I am going on a scrapbooking/crafting retreat in a few weeks and decided to make these little note cards and holders for the girls.

Here is what you need to get started:

2 pieces of cardstock to match designer paper(Autumn Spendor cardstock) DCWV
1 piece of cream cardstock
1 piece of designer paper from Autumn Splendor, DCWV
monogram stamp to emboss
Ribbon to match
Lacy ribbon
paper trimmer

First we are going to cut out our note cards, one sheet of cardstock will make 8 note cards.  Since I was making a number of note card holders, I used 4 note cards for each holder.  (1) Score an 12" x 12" piece of cardstock at 3" and 9", (2) next cut the cardstock in half, 6".  (3) Then stack each side on top of each other and cut 3" cards, as shown below




From the cream cardstock, cut 5 - 2"x2" squares, from coordinating piece of cardstock cut 5 - 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" squares, now cut 4 - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" squares from your designer paper.  Fold cards in half and layer with all of the squares.  My monogram stamp was 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".  I stamped the monogram, then embossed with gold embossing powder.  Viola!  Note cards done!

Now for the basket.  Cut a piece of designer paper, 3" x 11" and punch on the top edge.  (1) Next, using a piece of matching cardstock, cut a piece for the bottom, 3" x 4" and score each side at an 1/2".   (2) Construct a small box out of the cardstock and wrap it on the outside with 1/4" Scor-Tape.  (3) Wrap the designer paper around bottom piece.  Tip:  I pinched the corners when I came to them.  Attach a piece of Scor-Tape to the edge and close basket.





Next, wrap a piece of 1/4" Scor-Tape around the top and attach lace.  Add two pieces of 1/4" Scor-Tape to the front and back.  This will attach the ribbon handles, ribbon is about 8" long, you will need 2 pieces.

And your done!  Easy Peasy!

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial today!  Have lots of fun hopping along!
